‘Racket Up, America!’ Offers Chance to Win $1 Million

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — A new promotion by the tennis industry, designed to drive consumer awareness of tennis while helping to stimulate retail sales, will offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance for a lucky winner to serve for $1 million and win a trip to the US Open.

In the unique promotion, called “Racket Up, America!”, anyone who buys a new tennis racket—of any brand, and at any tennis retailer or pro shop—from July 15 through September 30, 2009, could win a chance to serve for the $1 million grand prize, along with a trip for two to the finals of the 2010 US Open. The serve for $1 million will take place at the BNP Paribas Showdown in New York’s Madison Square Garden on March 1, during Tennis Night in America.

Consumers register their racket purchase at playtennis.com/million—and they’re immediately entered to win. Also available will be other prizes totaling $10,000.  More information on “Racket Up, America!”, including official rules and details, are at playtennis.com/million and playtennis.com/partner.
